Personal debt allegedly drove FCMB branch manager to commit suicide

There are new reports that the First City Monument Bank manager who shot himself in the head last week and shocked the whole nation with his act did it because he had amassed a huge debt from personal commitments and was at the verge of “losing everything.”

Olisa Nwakoby, a commercial banker with Nigeria's First City Group, took his own life before his pastor, leaving his family, friends and colleagues writhing in grief.

The news spread quickly, prompting reports that he may have died as a result of undue pressure being mounted on him by his employer, over a N350 million delinquent loan he approved on behalf of the bank.

The reports alleged that FCMB started putting pressure on Mr. Nwakoby to find a way of recovering

Oritsefemi’s manager, Danku and Rayce (his artiste) were involved in a terrible motor accident on Sunday July 31 around Sango-Ota, on the outskirts of Lagos.

Reports say a Dangote truck from nowhere and rammed into his car which further affected other cars. Danku was in his car alongside his new artiste, Rayce, his label boss, Ebony and a bouncer.

Narrating his ordeal from the hospital, Danku told NET
‘My brother, imagine we were coming from a show in Ilorin and nothing happened to us until we got to Sango. This Dangote truck just slammed into me from behind and it caused a ripple effect ramming into about four other cars’.

Asked if any one sustained serious injuries, he responded,
‘Everyone in my car including Rayce sustained serious injuries, we are all in one hospital at Agege now. I’m not sure what’s wrong with me yet o’.
An eyewitness also said,
 'It happened like a movie. The Dangote truck just came out of no where and rammed into about five cars. I'm sure people died, because it looked really bad'.

Men of the Federal Road Safety Corps have also reportedly confirmed the accident.

If yes, why? What happened? What was the outcome?

Let's have a great discussion, guys.
